Mounting grommets help boost lamp life
Nov 1, 2004 12:00 PM
Truck-Lite Co Inc has developed two new mounting grommets, “closed back” and “semi-closed back,” for its 60 Series 6" oval lighting products.
The “closed back” grommet is designed specifically for 60 Series lighting products. Its back is closed to help prevent water and dirt from being splashed onto the back of the lamp and electrical connector, reducing corrosion and premature electrical failure.
The “semi-closed back” grommet is specifically designed for 60 Series sealed and bulb-replaceable incandescent lighting products. Its shape protects against corrosion where the connector plugs into the lamp, while maintaining enough airflow so heat generated by the incandescent bulb will escape.
Both grommets are made of PVC material to provide lamps with additional shock absorbency. They are mounted in the same opening as Truck-Lite's traditional 60 Series mounting grommets and can be oriented in either direction. The grommets are flush-mounted to act as a barrier against stone damage, corrosion, and to help prevent damage from impact.
